Best Friends Legislative Alert

Ask Gov. Rauner to sign SB 641.

Great news! Thanks to your action, the Illinois state legislature recently passed Senate Bill 641 with strong bipartisan support. Now we just need Governor Rauner’s signature on this humane measure. 

SB 641 would allow counties to use their pet population control funds to humanely reduce the outdoor cat population through trap-neuter-vaccinate-return (TNVR) programs. It would also allow counties to use these funds to spay and neuter adopted dogs and cats, as well as pets belonging to residents who are eligible for Social Security disability benefits. This common-sense bill would allow counties throughout the state to decide what is best for their communities’ companion animals. 

Time is running out, so please take action today. Politics is not a spectator sport, so please send an email to Gov. Bruce Rauner, asking him to sign SB 641 into law. Phone calls are also effective. Governor Rauner’s phone number is (217) 782-0244

 Thanks! Together, we will Save Them All.

Dear [Decision Maker],

As a constituent, I urge you to sign SB 641 into law. This bill allows counties to utilize pet population funds they collect in the same manner as the state.

Please support local governmental control and help save tax dollars and lives by signing SB 641 into law.
Thank you for your consideration in this important matter.
